now, this is my favorite segment of the day, felicia, fresh off the campaign train covering paul ryan and paul cain who knows more than any human being about congress. well, with that intro, paul, don't disappoint me. >> is that an insult? >> no, i meant it as the highest form of compliment. you are talking to a political nerd. i feel like despite the fact we talk about the fiscal cliff all the time there's a level of misunderstanding this panic. it's not that simple. can you explain it in layman's terms? >> sure. . >> pretend you are talking to me. >> all of the tax hikes that are set to kick in on january 1, all the automatic spending cuts set to kick in on january 1, that's what we're trying to beat. we're trying to beat that deadline before all of those things kick in. but there's a way that you can do this so that there's a general agreement. a general framework where they understand that we're going to come up with a deal that can save almost $4 trillion but the implementation of this -- >> the specifics of that bill. >> which tax hikes are set in motion, which entitlement refor
. now that those who believed in austerity have abandoned it, will paul ryan accept that the president's balanced approach is actually the better way to deliver economic growth? >> yes, and i think the comment from this colorful mayor as well as a lot of other european leaders should make both parties step back here. remember what the fiscal cliff, the prem m is -- the entire premise that it is based on in august of 2011, which is that we had to have deficit reduction to match dollar to dollar the amount of debt ceiling extension. that is a good policy if we're in 3% or 4% economic growth but when the economy is growing at 1% or 2% growth you don't engage in fiscal austerity. 90% of all economists believe in keynesian economics. the idea now that we have to be facing a fiscal cliff when the economy is only at 2% is wrong and is wrong for most economists' point of view. if democrats and republicans are looking for a way out of the fiscal cliff, this whole idea of having to cut $1.6 trillion in january '13 is just a made up number. it's an artifice. there's no reason we need to stick to
better to say it any way. the man who came in second place for vice president this year is paul ryan. paul ryan, go. >> some of the turnout. some of the turnout in urban areas, which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> president obama won reelection because of high turnout in urban areas. that's what paul ryan says presumably because it makes him feel good to think that's must be what happened. here's what we know. nbc news reporting that in the swing states, president obama did as well as democrats usually do in urban areas. so he did well there, but pretty much par for the course. if you look at the eight swing states the president won, president obama did only marginally better in some of them. two states, he actually did worse. florida was the only state where there was a significant increase. just florida. a state the president didn't even have to win in order to win the election. so paul ryan's theory about how and why they lost, the surprise urban turnout might make him feel better about what happened, but it doesn't explain why. okay. now it's
with free birth control obviously. as for paul ryan, he just can't believe urban americans managed to leave their sad, cramped apartments and tenments and made the long trek to the voting booth. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> apparently mr. ryan forgot his opponents were giving out free birth control. should have seen that coming. now, some in the gop are trying to escape this whirling vortex of deep denial and blame, especially those looking to run in 2016. louisiana governor bobby jindal was out at a mike within hours. >> i absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. i don't think that represents where we are as a party and where we're going as a party. >> well, into which dimension the party is headed still remains very much up for question. let's get right to our panel. here in new york joy reid is the managing editor of thegrio.com. msnbc contributor ari melber is a columnist for "the nation." and in washington m
are also going nonstop. vice president joe biden in colorado today, and paul ryan in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. ohio could be the biggest battleground of the election, and the race there is tight. a just released cnn-orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc "wall street journal" marist poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is speaking at a rally in mentor, ohio, in hour. dan lothian is there along with him. dan, good morning. ohio certainly critical to these candidates. what line of attack is the president expected to take there to widen his lead? >> well, you know, randi, it continues to be one that focus on the auto industry. i'm told by a campaign official that the president will continue that theme that he was pushing yesterday while campaigning here in ohio, that the auto bailout which he pushed, which he says that mitt romney did not support, helped to save thousands of jobs here in an area that the auto industry is very critical to employment here, so that's the theme that the president
-worker to vote for paul ryan and me. let's make sure every single person we know gets out and votes on tuesday. what makes this rally and all your work so inspiring his putt -- is that you are here because you care about america. this campaign is about the future we are going to leave to our children. i want you to stay with us all the way to victory on tuesday night. it is possible that some of your friends or family members have not made up their mind to vote 4. let me suggest when you talk to them -- have not made up their mind to vote for. let me suggest when you talk to them to tell them to look past the speeches. change cannot be measured in speeches. it is measured in achievement. four years ago, candidate obama promised to do so much, but he has fallen so short. he has promised to be a post partisan president, but he has been so partisan. it is not just republicans he has refused to listen to, but also independent voices. he said he was born to focus on creating jobs, but he focused on obamacare -- he was going to focus on creating jobs, but he focused on obamacare, which killed jobs.
ask you about the choice of paul ryan to be involved in a negotiation when he has seemed to dig his heels in a fairly ideological way for the last several years? >> well, it's something that speaker boehner has done to exert his influence over the house republican conference. the idea from my conversations with boehner aides is that look, paul ryan is a very popular figure within the house republican conference. any possible deal or compromise must have his fingerprints on it. but make no mistake, alex, this is not going to be paul ryan as the chief negotiator of this deal. it's still going to be john boehner, john boehner's people, they are battle tested when it comes to these deficit deals and having paul ryan in the room is simply a way for john boehner to try to avoid and watch out -- avoid any consternation within his conference and watch out for his flank which as we know from 2011 he's had a mighty difficult time getting things through his group of fellow republicans who are not too keen on any compromise, be much less one in this case that could increase tax rates. >> it see
presidential nominee paul ryan to admit that contrary to what the nra was saying and multi-million dollar ad buys around the country, that actually president obama wasn't changing gun laws to take anyone's guns away. and then paul ryan pulled off his microphone and his handler put that piece of paper up in front of the camera and paul ryan never did another local news interview until he lost the election and the campaign was over. i'm thankful for local news reporter who is work generally in lousy conditions with lousy support for lousy pay, and who do things as wide rangingly wonderful as ktla covering the story of the glendale bear wandering the streets of los angeles, to cbs atlanta, building this wacky graphic to accompany the story of the georgia republican state senators holding a seminar on president obama's mind control techniques, to the political reporter for the abc affiliate in miami who had the big pitcher of water thrown all over him, when he was bravely trying to report on the story of the scandal-ridden now former congressman, david rivera. i'm thankful, specifically, for jam

at it voucher program, which mitt romney and paul ryan supported and the american people rejected. so don't fall for this republican line of baloney that they have suddenly seen -- gotten religion when it comes to new revenue. the only solution is an balanced report which includes spending cuts and new revenue and not just closing loopholes. it's not just closing loopholes. it has got to include raising taxes on the wealthiest 1%. let's talk about it 866-55-press. 866-557-7377. i hope i'm not alone among the media who will say these republicans are just trying to con the americans one more time and stick to the old mitt romney plan which the american people rejected on november 6th. don't fall for it. 866-55-press. let's talk about it. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." ♪ [ male announcer ] it's that time of year again. time for citi price rewind. because your daughter really wants that pink castle thing. and you really don't want to pay more than you have to. only citi price rewind automatically searches for the lowest price. and if it fi
deductions since the campaign. mitt romney ran on this. so did paul ryan. so it doesn't this weekend like a lot of movement there. despite painting the picture they are getting wobbly on taxes. >> what is going on now is positioning and posturing. you have to get the big boys here. there are four people and you saw them a week ago at the white house. they were optimistic rhetoric about getting a deal done before christmas, before the december 31 deadline. right now, the logic is, this came out of the meetings that were held between the white house liaison and the head of the staff director and the past week. we need large frames that we can offer to the principl princo when they begin negotiation they know where they are headed. >> bret: a lot of focus on the tax issue. republican side. what we haven't heard is the specifics about what the democrats are willing to do on entitlement reform. >> so given the fact of the election, the democrats believe they have an advantage here. don't sacrifice entitlement. you hear now from the leading democrats like dick durbin saying don't go after socia
're on with fred barnes of the "weekly standard." caller: bob. yes, you said that paul ryan is a good candidate for the future? the guy couldn't even tell the truth about his marathon run, and then he takes a tour of a soup kitchen, and he cleans up after the place is closed. romney, i mean, my god the guy lied throughout campaign, and you would actually support a guy who lies to the american people about jobs going to china with the jeep? host: how did paul ryan do on the campaign trail? guest: well, i thought he did extremely well and i thought he flubbed that news about the marathon but if he did it in the time he said he would be on a marathon-running circuit. that was just a mistake. he hadn't run it in about is 1 -- in about 11-12 years. i know paul ryan. paul ryan is not a liar. and with mitt romney, the whole question about the jeeps, there's a dispute whether chrysler, which owns jeeps jeep is going to have to go to italy. there's a story about that. on the china issue overall for romney, that was an issue that didn't work. there are issues that poll well, but when you try to rely on t

didn't win. mitt romney-paul ryan were terrific leaders and decent people. we go to election and the polls even. hand it to the president. he did a great job getting out of with the voter and closing argument had undecided many go his way. we salute that. but yes, i'm pleased that the bright light last night. we won eight of the 11 congressional seats in virginia. and we pick up another republican governor. so we have 30 republican governors. 60% now. around the country. that is a good sign. >> bret: there is instro spection. if you look at the coalition the president put together, the latino vote. exit polls. it went up from 2008 to 2012. voted for president obama. the youth vote went up from 2008 to 2012 from 18 to 19%. the female vote gender gap was significant for the president. the gender gap is significant. do the republicans have to do more on those fronts? >> yes. i thought the message was good on jobs and the economy. deficit reduction, energy independence, protecting the military. the right issue. but winning is the combination of the right tone to bring as many peo

and i think we need to talk about paul ryan. the big headline is on cliff ryan faces two paths, will he stick to ideological purity or compromise to get a deal. how influential is he? >> we haven't heard much from paul ryan. i was more intrigued with eric cantor, so often the thorn in the side for speaker boehner is now saying he wants to get in there and do a deal. >> it was definitely a more conciliatory tone. he didn't give too many specifics but it was a different tone. >> in some accounts it was cantor's pressure in leaving conservative house members against boehner a bit and that first time around that helps settle things a little bit. i thought cantor was saying publicly was the big tale and paul ryan i haven't heard much from yet. >> and the other people trying to get in are the governors especially the delaware governor jack markell on a conference call with joe biden and a dozen mayors went to washington, d.c. to lobby lawmakers. are states more scared of going off the fiscal cliff? >> sure. state budgets would be impacted dramatically and very bad for them. governors are very
of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president obama came into the east room and made a very short speech. very clear about what his plan is and what he wanted. here's the president with one challenge to members of congress. >> obama: i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> bill: what does he mean by that? >> balanced. he's saying first of all it's not just spending cuts. it has to be revenues as well. second, he's rejecting the john boehner approach which is boehner saying i'll agree to revenues as long as they come as a result of economic growth. in other words, we won't legislate changes in taxes. we'll hope that revenues
. your question goes to mr. murphy. >> we have seen different numbers on what the paul ryan plan would do in the fact to increase costs to seniors, anywhere from $6,350 to about $200 a month. what kind of number can we look at and say this is what a cut will look like under this plan because of a large area of the budget that needs to be looked at? >> that is the kaiser family foundation study. under the ryan plan, 60% of seniors will face cost increases. this is something that needs to be addressed. under their plan, we end medicare as we know it. we need to reach across the aisle and ensure that medicare is there for generations to come. i was talking to seniors and you could see the fear in their eyes, worrying that medicare will be taken from them. we cannot let it happen. we need real solutions. under the affordable care act, they found inefficiencies and they have taken back away from insurance company executives, from the pharmaceuticals, and given it back to seniors, this is what we need to do to bring down the long term cost curve that is driving our costs through the roof. >> we
if president obama wins re-election. three if governor mitt romney wins. since vice president paul ryan would serve as the tiebreaker. 33 seats are up for grabs. >> it's possible, although it's looking increasingly unlikely that republicans will be able to gain control of the senate. >> why is that? for one thing there's main republican olympia snowe's unexpected retirement from a body she described as hopelessly partisan. republicans will likely lose that seat. then there are the self-inflicted wounds like this comment from republican todd akin who is running in missouri. >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> reporter: those words sparked an outcry, putting a victory over he democrat claire mccaskill, a top gop target in doubt. >> that was the gimmee. he said those comments, that race is very much in play. >> reporter: then there was this remark by indiana republican richard murdock, explaining why he opposes abortion even in cases of rape. >> life is a gift from god, and i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rap
, to rubio. >> bobbi jindal? paul ryan? >> but this is a beauty contest phase. it tells you nothing because the real decision will come when they decide on politics questions. you have already seen some push back against traditional republicans. they said, look, the problem was that we went with a moderate and did not get one of our own. that argument will come up over and over again. it will come up over immigration. there are some very strong people who are also going to fight. they have battles ahead of them. >> you have to be miss oklahoma before you can be miss america, charles. >> that is a very deep thought. >> i am loaded with them. >> i had not really contemplated it. you mean, christy who gave -- >> and don't go there. >> and chris christie is actually right now in quarantine. in about six months he will be ready to rejoin the race. one interesting about these candidates is there is not a stark ideological development -- division between them. there is not a single issue over which you go left or right. i think there is a consensus, what you start with ryan, rubio, jeb bush, jinda
. >> this is a puzzle about how he played his cards. he picked paul ryan, who has big ideas -- and this appetite -- it can be sated. he will get a lot of cred from the voters pavillion. instead you get the worst of both worlds. you get whatever criticism there was. and they use him like tim pawlenty. aey haven't talked about single tough choice. >> for the c-span audience, one question from earlier -- there are two big questions. i am not convinced. one question, why did mitt romney not pivot to the center, as he did in denver in the debate, why didn't he do that in april. that was the time to make the shift. the obama team forecast their strategy. >> the reason was -- you wrote brilliantly about it. until the convention, the campaign they ran was not good until the convention. they wasted money in not buying adds earlier. he could have moved to the middle. the republicans didn't think they could win and would have taken any transition. and an email from northern chile -- what impact will latino voters have? you bring a lot about immigration reform. >> new mexico wasn't in play. it went automati
blue collar and older whites. even with paul ryan on the ticket, a 60% of seniors voted for romney. in the long run, i think those red states are problematic for democrats. look at north carolina. in north carolina or virginia, obama's numbers among blue- collar whites are unbelievably low. they are in the high-20's or 30's. in the long run, i do think there is this pattern. the sun belt will be more important than the west about. they do have the incredible ability to hang on to -- the shift will be to states that have the same social forces of rising diversity and rising education levels. >> we have a slight disagreement. obama did well among these groups in 2008. democrats do well among white blue-collar voters in the midwest. there are union presidents and other things that give them a boost. there is a slight fracture of the automobile bailout. ohio did not look that different. i think of no bailout might have helped a bit around the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperfor
, congressman paul ryan. we talked a little bit this morning. you know what the first thing he reminded me, he said luis, i was a cosponsor of your original comprehensive immigration bill along with other republicans. we had a wonderful conversation. i'm not committing him to anything on this program. we had a wonderful conversation but the fact is there are republicans who don't -- who look at the election, including paul ryan who are saying you know what? i used to be on the bill. luis, maybe you and i should have a conversation. i look forward -- there are many, many republicans who don't have the view that mitt romney has. they're look at ways to expand their party and to have a different politics in america. >> eliot: look, there are some republicans who never had that view. some republicans who had that view who may be changing for political reasons. that's okay. it is going to succeed. >> you know what ryan told me? i'm not going to do it because it's political. he said i want to do it because it the right thing t
blustering. mitt romney and paul ryan talking about how to pay for their plan but not a single deduction or exclusion they would change in order to pay for it. so from the white house's perspective the way to do this, the right sequencing is let the bush tax cuts expire, pocket the money. do tax reform over the next y r year. if you come up with a plan, if you can get that plan ratified, raising the same amount of money and it's reasonable, we can talk about it. we can do it through tax reform. first the money, you make sure it's real and you lock it in. >> is that the whole reason why this negates a conversation about tax later even though mitch mcconnell has taken to the microphones to acknowledge the money is on the table? >> right. so for them the idea that revenue is on the table is, for the republicans, revenue is on the table means tax reform. they want to do it and the democrats don't buy that revenue is truly on the table. they don't buy when republicans say revenue is on the table and democrats say revenue is on the table that both sides are talking about the same thing. let m

is with all of her fancy, highfalutin words. >> paul ryan lost on the national ticket but won back his seat in congress. he will be back at the table of negotiations continuing over tax increases and spending cuts. paul ryan will continue to head up the house budget committee and john boehner expects him to help as the two parties try to come to a compromise that would stave off the fiscal cliff generate revenue and reduce the deficit. the hope is that ryan can help bring around fellow conservatives. as senator patty murray points out to the "new york times," ryan will have to be willing to listen and compromise if he's going to stick to his former budget proposals, it will be a long winter. americans just voted against paul's vision for our nation. paul ryan's vision for our nation. house minority leader nancy pelosi is optimistic that democrats and republicans can come to some sort of compromise by mid december. but on abc's this week, she also made it clear that a deal has to do more than just close tax loopholes. i
's schedule today is congressman paul ryan, the house budget chairman. of course was his running mate back during the campaign. paul ryan has a key role in these budget talks of course as well. where they stand, a short time ago vice president biden went to a local costco here in washington, d.c., proclaimed himself optimistic they would get a deal. the fact of the matter yesterday, erskine bowles, a key player as well, saying he is slightly pessimistic. he says there is 2/3 chance they will go off the fiscal cliff. that is not what the markets want to hear, jon. jon: not at all. ed henry at the white house. if jay carney relents and let you into the meeting give us a shot. we'll be on air. >> reporter: i will give you a copy of the menu. jon: please do, thanks. jenna: we'll forget about politicians just for a moment. i promise we'll return there surely over the next couple hours. let's talk about some renewed private sector pushing to really slash the federal budget. a group called citizens against government waste is calling for nearly $2 trillion in cuts the next five years. doug mckelw

of mitt romney's ideas as their negotiating starting point. well, we just -- >> we needed paul ryan actually to help get the job done. >> even having paul ryan talk about it. it's amazing. they decided while mitt romney lost the election, his ideas, they think won. i don't know how they get there. >> i feel like what they're trying to do is say, we lost, never mind but we're going to keep doing what we do. if we keep saying it enough, maybe -- >> i read that -- john boehner's op-ed pretty carefully. here's one thing he said. he said there are three ways to take down obama care, through the courts, through the election -- by the way, both of those haven't worked out -- three through what he called congressional oversight. to me, what he's saying there is congressional sabotage. >> right. >> maybe i'm -- maybe i didn't listen closely enough to, you know, civics back in elementary school, but the job of the congress is to implement the supreme court-backed law of the land. >> that's right. >> to me what he's saying is really quite scary when you get down to it. >> i want to ask -- ther
't mention paul ryan the his tenure as the vice presidential candidate, does that put him out there as the front-runner, that tent you describe, does he not fit as well under that tent that you need to see with the gop going forward? >> i think paul ryan and rick santorum and a number of other candidates who certainly are going to be viable players going forward are also names to watch. but i think that the party standard bearer will likely be somebody who's able to reach a broad coalition going forward. more than just conservatives. and the republican base. whoever it is has to reach a lot more folks. >> yeah. so margie, chris christie, always being talked about for this. does his embrace of the president during hurricane sandy, do you think that hurts or helps him, in tells of both getting a nomination, and then being elected? because that can be two different things. >> i'm a new jersey native. and my stepfather has the same sort of new jersey attitude that chris christie has. i think that attitude, sometimes can be hurtful for chris christie in the case of hurricane sandy,
for that position? >> no, no. >> romney will also meet with his running mate congressman paul ryan for the first time since the election. if cameras catch it, it's likely it might happen somewhere on capitol hill. we've been told it will be held in a private place, not in the u.s. capitol, not in one of the buildings. cameras did capture governor romney going to disney. he'll have office space at solo mere, the firm co-founded by his son tag. he raised a record amount of money that no one thought was possible on the republican side. other than that we haven't seen much of romney. one person who is making himself known at least today is the romney campaign's chief strategist stewart stevens. he's defending the campaign in the pages of "the washington post." in an op ed that's amazing of being completely free of even a single piece of self reflection. if you believe stevens, it was all outside sources that stopped one of the great president campaigns in history, a campaign that by the way will make him fabulously wealthy. when all is said and done, stephens may have made as much as $10 million. we
running mate, paul ryan. but i think -- what i think a lot of people want to know if we're going to hear from governor romney today. oftentimes we have a stakeout, microphone or camera position outside the white house. is that the case today? i know we can't get into that private dining room. what about outside after the governor leaves? >> reporter: we have cameras everywhere, to not only get a shot of the governor going in, but also if he wants to say something, we'll be there, as well. as you pointed out, my colleague, jim acosta, said about a half hour ago, according to a republican source, governor romney was meeting with representative ryan at a hotel here in it d.c. and so it's unclear. we have located where that hotel is, and if we'll be staking that out as well. but we just want to be able to hear a little bit about what is in governor romney's head, what is he thinking, what does he hope to accomplish by this meeting? at this point, we're watching and waiting, but so far, nothing. >> we've got to make sure that microphone and the hot mic position is in on position. dan lothian,
's right. romney met with his former running mate, paul ryan, a little bit earlier on this morning. he said to reporters that it was nice to see his old friend, his old running mate. paul ryan issued a statement after that meeting and we have a graphic of that. i can read it to you right now, thomas. he said, i remain grateful to governor romney for the honor of joining his ticket this fall. i cherish our friendship. i'm proud of the principles and issues we advanced during the campaign and the commitment we share to expanding opportunity and promoting economic security for american families. so governor romney here meeting with various people at, of course, what is a very critical time. the deadline for the fiscal cliff is drawing near. you have to imagine that that was a large part of romney's discussions today both with president obama and with ryan. >> kristen welker at the white house, thanks so much. >>> we take you back on capitol hill where congressional leaders put much of their energy on the ongoing fiscal cliff negotiations. oklahoma representative tom cole who broke ranks with r
